Westland Reverie Fig. 1, 50%

Price: $110 Issue: Spring 2019 Reviewer: David Fleming

Each release of the limited-edition Reverie series will be different from the last, as Westland explores the boundaries of single malt blending. Spice and fragrant oak on the nose, delicately floral, with light fruitiness on the palate and a hint of peat. A spicy, white pepper note precedes a lengthy finish of apricot, honeycomb, and then more spiciness. This whiskey floats like a butterfly, but has plenty of heft, depth, and balance. (900 bottles; distillery only)
